The Vatican recently announced that the late nun known as Mother Teresa is to become a saint.
Today’s post is inspired by one of her most famous quotes “Peace begins with a smile”. We can all spread peace with the simple act of smiling and by being kind to one another.
With all the conflict and hardship in the world, remembering to be hopeful and generous to one another can sometimes be difficult. Smiling can feel good and make the people around you feel better as well. Dogs are great at making us smile. Just looking at dog faces can reduce stress and improve mood. They also live in the moment and don’t sweat the little things.
Other quotes from her we love are:
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
Dogs do not waste time judging.
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
Dogs are great at making us smile. Just looking at dog faces can reduce stress and improve mood. They also live in the moment and don’t sweat the little things. It’s no wonder dogs make such great therapy animals.
Kilo provides endless laughs and happiness with his mischief, affection and flaws. I find myself smiling when I wake up to his demanding little puppy kisses, when I come in the front door and when he wants me to cuddle and get up from my computer or feed him.
